World Market Center Las Vegas named Jamie Drake as its 2012 Design Icon. The award will be presented at the upcoming Winter 2012 Las Vegas Market, Jan. 30 – Feb. 3.
“Each year, as a Market, we strive to deliver what’s new on every front,” said Robert Maricich, chief executive officer of International Market Centers, parent company of WMCLV. “We’ve seen Jamie Drake do the same with his bold, colorful designs and believe he is very deserving of such accolades and industry recognition.”
Drake’s other acknowledgements include the IFDA New York Circle of Excellence for Interior Design and the Andrew Martin International Designer of the Year.
As the new Design Icon, Drake joins the ranks of some of the greatest designers worldwide including Christopher Guy, Larry Laslo, Juan Montoya, Roger Thomas and Vicente Wolf, who are past recipients of the annual industry award.
“I am thrilled to receive the 2012 Design Icon Award and to be named among such an illustrious and distinguished group of talent,” said Drake. “I cannot think of a more appropriate place than the glitz, glamour and sparkle of Las Vegas for me to receive this honor and be recognized for my work.”
